The GM interviews continued on Tuesday, as two more candidates visited for interviews. Arizona director of player personnel Steve Keim and Miami director of player personnel Brian Gaine were in and both were on the original list of candidates the Rams are interested in.
As far as these two go, I have heard more good things about Keim than probably any other candidate. It’s hard to handicap this race, especially since Jeff Fisher will have his say, but Keim looks like an outstanding option. The Rams are the only team in the NFL that are still looking for a GM, so they will pretty much have their pick of anyone they want. As far as Gaine goes, I haven’t heard as much about him but he seems to be promising.
In other news, the team announced that John Fassel has been named the team’s special teams coach. Fassel has been with Oakland for the last several years, so here’s hoping he can turn this unit into a strength. It seems like special teams has been a sour spot here for years, so turning it around could be a major component of turning this franchise around.
